Compassionate Santa Arrives at Savannah Mall Dec. 7
Santa will meet with special needs children from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

(SAVANNAH, GA) A ‘compassionate’ Santa will be on hand to meet with special needs children at the Savannah Mall on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on the lower level near the soft play area. The event, which is specially designed to accommodate children who are autistic or have similar sensory concerns, will provide an atmosphere free from the usual lighting, music and over-stimulating mall surroundings that prevent an enjoyable visit with Santa. Each child will receive a 5×7 photo commemorating his or her special visit with Santa. Those planning to attend should contact the Savannah Mall ahead of time at 912-927-9663.

“All children deserve to have special time with Santa,” said Savannah Mall General Manager Phil McConnell. “We are pleased to welcome the compassionate Santa to the Savannah Mall and know that he will bring joy to special needs children in our community.”

Other special events at the Savannah Mall in November and December include a holiday train for children in the Center Court and photos with Santa in the Target wing through December 24. The Savannah Mall’s 50-foot Christmas tree, outfitted with 300,000 LED lights, is on display in the Center Court.
